Writer:Nur Iman Miyazaki

Yokohama city has prospered as an international harbor city since the opening of the port in 1859. Yokohama bay area is located within 1 hour from Tokyo station and Shinjuku station by train. It is a good place for a day trip if you are staying in Tokyo.

The Yokohama bay area which lies from “Minato Mirai”, the city center of Yokohama up to Yamashita Park is facing the Tokyo Bay and beautifully developed. The town is full of activity and during weekends there is always special events. There are many museums, “Yokohama Cosmo World” amusement park, shopping centers and cafés that you can visit there. Make sure, you don’t miss the fantastic night view too!

One of the world’s largest China Town is actually located in Yokohama. Unfortunately, there is no Halal Chinese restaurant there (as of September 2017), but it is fun to see the exotic cityscape and Chinese variety goods shops.
